I'm sorry you have so much trouble getting
the right kind and dose of medication; at
least the dx seems to be certain.

I know what you mean about the "switch" - I
experienced it with li and I call it the
On/Off button (i.e. computer);

1200 mg li is what is typically given the first
3 months of initiation into the drug; that's what
i got; but after that once they measure your blood
level and stabilization is attained, it is lowered
to 900mg - maybe even lower for some people.

Many factors can influence the dose, e.g. the
state of your thyroid, which I assume must have
been checked.

And yes, lithium feels natural. I hope some
kind of combo can work out for you. Drug treatment
for mental states is new so I guess they just
don't know a lot of things.
